Zero International was established in the USA in 1924. They began by meeting the overwhelming demand in their community for window screens. This was out of a need to help fight the spread of mosquito borne diseases that used to be prevalent, due to New York City being very marshy at the time. Zero diversified into door seals in the late 1970s when they saw opportunities to expand into other door related products. Zero products are manufactured in various parts of the USA. Since April 2015, Zero has become a fully owned subsidiary of Allegion.
The entire Zero product range is now available to the Australian market. Contact the team at Allegion to arrange a demonstration time.
